The Taste of Summer by Shira--hime The Taste of Summer by Shira--hime
Ta-dah!
Here's my entry for the Dr. Pepper contest. It's more or less what Dr. Pepper is to you, and it was pretty fun to try putting all my ideas into one picture. Needless to say, my skills have not caught up with my imagination yet. >.>
My introduction to this tasty drink came from a very close friend. We've had some awesome times growing up together, and as (more or less grown-up) artists, we enjoy drawing together, as well as working on other creative projects, which is mostly in the summer. Our drink of choice during these get-together is always Dr. Pepper, being usually the closest, coldest, and tastiest drink nearby. So, for me, Dr. Pepper tastes like summer, and it reminds me of all the great times spent with friends drawing, painting, and enjoying each others' company. ^.^
I tried to get the idea of various aspects of summer in the picture, with butterflies, growing things, but also the ocean and beach, too. =)
Hope you like it!

I like this one so much! You've gotten us down here in such a cute and colorful way. And to top it all off, Dr. Pepper. So us, through and through. This just makes me happy to look at it. The progression of colors from one side to the other is neat, and the details that go with those changes are excellent. The colored cans are great, too. ^.^ All in all, just awesome! Great work, and done so quickly, too.
Good luck with the contest, man! =D

I'm glad you like it! It turned out looking very comic-y, which I suppose is all right. My cell shading isn't so hot, but it was a first attempt. ^.^ Thanks! You too. ;)

I think it looks pretty cool for the cell shading. You might want to play with it some more. I like it more than cell to be honest. :)
